Masha,a  long-haired tabby cat who roams the streets of Russia, is loved by her community and cared for by all. One day, someone heard Masha meowing to get their attention, and when they tracked down the source of the meowing, they found Masha in a box, cuddled next to a baby that someone had abandoned in the cold.

Fortunately Masha managed to keep the baby warm during its time outside so it didn’t suffer any damage from the winter air. Now Masha is hailed in the neighborhood as a hero, which proves that cats really can be more useful than just hunting down rodents.
